Bristol Bay and the Proposed Pebble Mine: Seeking Peace and Protection for Salmon

Saturday, Mar 22, 2014, 11:00 am

Putting North America’s largest open pit mine at the head waters of the worlds largest sockeye salmon fishery is just a bad idea. Alaskan Natives know it, Orthodox Christians know it, commercial fishermen know it. Come learn about their effort to stop the mine, care for God’s Creation, and what you can do to ensure we can all enjoy wild sockeye salmon in the future!

  • Father Michael Oleksa, Orthodox Church in America
